Chris Mann certainly shined as a finalist on The Voice, but his star has risen even higher since the hit show's second season. In 2012, Mann signed with Faircraft/Republic, a new label formed by renowned producer/music executive Ron Fair (Christina Aguilera, Mary J. Blige). His debut full-length, Roads, introduced a whole new generation to the classical-pop genre and shot straight to No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers Chart and Top 5 on Billboard's Classical Chart.
Upon its release, he gave numerous high- profile television performances, including playing for President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama as part of TNT's "Christmas In Washington" special, appeared on "The Today Show," the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and "NBC's "Christmas in Rockefeller Center Special." Mann also released a holiday EP, Home For Christmas, which was sold exclusively at Walmart and hit No. 1 on the chain's Best-Selling Albums List.
He kicked off 2013 with a performance on "Conan" and his very own PBS Special helmed by award- winning producer Ken Ehrlich. Titled "A Mann For All Seasons," the show features special guest appearances by multi-platinum artist Martina McBride and Mindi Abair and is a re-creation of the Elvis Presley '69 Comeback Special with Chris performing in a boxing ring on a Sony soundstage.
